It will also be five years since Khan last fought in the United Kingdom, and since then Hearn has repeatedly tempted to lure him into a fight with rival Kell Brook, contributing to the tension between them. I never really lived the celebrity life and this put that with all its egos behind me and reminded me to concentrate on boxing'. I am not getting any younger.

"It's something I would consider", Spence Jr exclusively told Sky Sports, when asked about facing Khan.

British Pakistani boxer Amir Khan has said that he has put behind his matrimonial troubles and he's totally focused on winning the next big fight in April when he returns to the ring after the absence of almost two years. I just don't like Eddie Hearn.

"He [Hearn] is the best in boxing, he's on top of his game at the moment and I know I can get to where I need to get to with him".

Amir Khan is joined by Eddie Hearn, Adam Smith & Shah Khan to announce his new deal with Matchroom Boxing.

A fight between the pair has always been touted, however, never came to fruition as the two boxers camps could not agree terms.

"Great business is great business and this is a great move for everybody", Hearn said.

"When Pacquiao went and I heard Kell Brook went up a weight I thought "where do I go from here".

And he said his time in the jungle was crucial in allowing him to think about his boxing career. Khan and Hearn noted following a press conference Wednesday that Khan's long-discussed domestic showdown with Brook is more realistic than ever, but Khan added that he might resume his career as a welterweight. This isn't a deal to make that fight happen, but it's at the forefront of our minds to try and deliver that fight at the end of 2018. "Now all the barriers have gone, we're all in this together".

Khan says now: 'I said some stupid things.

"It is a bit odd but that's where it will end".

However, after a successful stint previous year on British reality-TV show "I'm a Celebrity. Now he fights for Matchroom, finally we will see me and him in the ring". He was in Sheffield for one of my fights, so I could well be there, now we're both Matchroom. I might turn up for that, I might even jump in the ring and lay a chocolate brownie on him.
